Snoop Dogg did a show at the University of Kansas’ “Late Night in the Phog” event last night and surprised officials at the school after they saw that his performance included pole dancers. The west coast legend also shot a money gun that had $100 bills with his face on it. This was at the Allen Fieldhouse in front of 16,300 people.
Kansas fans cheered and loved what they saw but university officials weren’t pleased at all. According to USA TODAY, men’s basketball coach Bill Self expressed concern about the show. He said it wasn’t the direction that the school wanted to go even if the crowd approved of the entertainment.
Athletics Director Jeff Long issued a statement and was surprised that they didn’t get a “clean show.”
“We apologize to anyone who was offended by the Snoop Dogg performance at Late Night. We made it clear to the entertainers’ manager that we expected a clean version of the show and took additional steps to communicate to our fans, including moving the artist to the final act of the evening, to ensure that no basketball activities would be missed if anyone did not want to stay for his show. I take full responsibility for not thoroughly vetting all details of the performance and offer my personal apology to those who were offended. We strive to create a family atmosphere at Kansas and fell short of that this evening.”
Snoop performed hits such as “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Gin and Juice.” He rapped the explicit lyrics too. Lawrence is a big college town and Snoop definitely tried to cater to the college crowd audience but he had to realize that people running the school would feel some type of way about the performance.
